Quartz (Japan Law Twin) With Manganbabingtonite
Fengjiashan Mine, Daye, Huangshi Area, Hubei, Central South Region, China
Cabinet, 10.5 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
This is a unique specimen, like none I have seen so far from China, as it features a Japan Law twin quartz included with a scattering of microcrystallized babingtonite! The resulting complexity of the crystal is really interesting, and stands out from every other jap twin I have seen. I love it! The major crystal is 4 cm across. There are also half a dozen smaller twins present, though not as richly ncluded or as large.
